It would be a dream come true if lucky enough to win and go play this Legendary Fest in Germany. And we will be playing our most Thunderous songs for maximum impact in the 20 minute heat we get smile emoticon, we also want to thank Louis Du Pisani for this great opportunity, there are a lot of great local bands competing and it’s an honour to be part of it.

Desolation hails from Durban, South Africa and they play death metal.



We were initially not going to enter this years SA Wacken Battle as our personal schedules were a bit hectic. But when we found out that there was a last minute slot open we jumped at the opportunity. We are stoked to be part of this event again. We had loads of fun back in 2013 when we took part in the first Wacken Battle. We have grown as a band since then, our music has definitely progressed and we cant wait to showcase this.

So this above bands will perform on the 23rd of April 2016, from 7pm till batman arrives. All funds generated by door sales will be given to the winning band to cover tour expenses so play your part, R40 is all it takes to witness the best and send the best of the best to Germany, to know more about this battle, click here.

Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
